Starting in Advent 2008, we began the three year Vision4Life programme, the first year of which focuses on the Bible. We have very recently received the Vision4Life literature for Bible Year. We are still planning what we shall be doing in 2009 – watch this space!
We include another Bible Quiz in this edition – How far did you get with the last one?? Details of Bible Studies follow…
One thing we would like to do is to include in our Newsletter articles written by members of our congregation on the theme of ‘My favourite Bible passage – and why it’s my favourite’. We don’t want theological expositions, but your own stories as to why particular bible passages speak to you. We will be most pleased to receive any offers.
As the introduction to the Bible Year booklet says ” Bible Year is an opportunity for those of us in the United Reformed Church – and our partner churches – to refresh our familiarity with this basic element of church life.
